Duke Votes

What happens next

It’s been a long, emotional fall for many of us. A hotly contested election, in the middle of a pandemic, a reckoning over race and economic turmoil, during a most unusual semester at Duke. There are a number of resources available to members of the Duke community who want to learn more or get support, from historical perspectives on presidential elections to health experts who can work with faculty, staff and students.
